Truman Underway in the Atlantic - TSTA Ops

An F/A-18F Super Hornet assigned to the "Red Rippers" of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 11, prepares for an arrested landing aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75). Truman is currently underway conducting Tailored Ship's Training Availability (TSTA) in the Atlantic Ocean. TSTA is a standard used to evaluate a ship's readiness for deployment.
